It finally feels like fall here in Milwaukee, so to celebrate Clark and I spent our Saturday out and about taking it all in. We started by driving an hour north to a place called Holy Hill. We walked around the top of this hill where a large church sits, and admired the beautiful scenery below. We could see all of the color variations in the trees and the empty spaces filled with corn fields. The air was crisp and cold so high up, so we made our way down and headed towards our intended destination.
Driving about 10 minutes down the road, we found the place that had brought us out so far: the Art Farm & local market. As we walked up the hill towards the entrance, we passed a large corn field and rows and rows of pumpkins. The wind was blowing a scent of kettle corn in our direction, making Clark suddenly act like a giddy child. We followed the smell to a small stand where the kettle corn was being freshly made. After making our first purchase, we moved on through the many different stands that had be setup for the day. We saw a variety of things such as home pieces, art, food, clothing, etc.
Finding my favorite place (pictured below), I suddenly was the one giddy as a child. I quickly walked around everything ooo-ing and aww-ing as I went. Clark knew he was in trouble when I stumbled upon a large old frame holding a chalkboard with a wire basket attached to the bottom. He asked the owner how much it would cost, both of us expecting it to be well over $150.. Since that is what World Market would've sold it for.. The woman responded that it was $60! We were both shocked at the deal, and Clark and I immediately snatched it up.
We continued on, walking from shop to shop, periodically stopping by the fire pit to warm up. After indulging in some cheese curds, and sufficiently checking out every item for sale, we wandered towards the near by corn field. There was a grassy path that ran between two beautiful settings: a field with fall-colored trees and a dried up corn field that immediately reminded you of fall memories. We strolled along the path taking in everything, feeling grateful for what we have.
After eventually losing feeling in our fingers from the cold, we headed back to the car, and back into town. Later in the night we met up with friends, went out to dinner, and made it just in time to see 'The Martian'. Ps. This is a great movie and you should definitely go see it! We ended the evening at home, sitting by the fire, and playing our favorite game: Cranium. This Saturday could've been spent catching up on sleep, cleaning, or doing laundry, but instead we decided to live it to the fullest. We were reminded by the falling leaves and changing weather that time doesn't wait for you.. It's truly so important to seize the day.
This is a representation of who I am, and a few of the things I love. I am excited to share with you a little bit about my life, and glad you're along for my journey!
